Because there’s a convention for everything: Ouijacon 2015

You’ve been to the Renaissance Fair(e), Comic Con, assorted and sundry Fandom Conventions, the Psychic Festival (hey, nice Aura!), Bill Goodman’s Gun n’ Knife/Huntin’ n’ Killin’ Show, seen Hot Rods and Lowriders… even Bronies vs. Furries.

There’s nothing new under the sun, you say. You’ve seen it all. Been there, done that.

Not so fast, Smuggy Buggy!

Yes Yes Yo and You Don’t Stop.

Welcome to the first spiritualist convention based around that Mysterious Occult Device which has a unique place in modern culture…and the games aisle at Toys R Us: The Ouija Board.

Fundamentalist Christians hate and fear it, skeptics sneer at it, horror movie producers have done it to death and Occultists, well, depends on who you talk to.

Love it or hate it, it’s here to stay it would seem and the much maligned Talking Board is about to celebrate a major milestone: the 125th anniversary of its creation, in the city where it all started, Baltimore, Maryland.… Read the rest

The Alien God Species

alien god 300The Alien God Species – The Watchers are HERE!

There is a species of extraterrestrials that are often referred to as being mythological, but, in fact, are very real. I call them “The Watchers” or “The God Species.” I know this because I believe I encountered one, and it altered my entire reality. At first and for the longest time, I believed my encounter was with a UFO. It wasn’t until years later that I deduced it was an entity, and that it was here for me. “Why me?” It’s as if someone lifted a curtain, wanting to reveal to me a certain amount of esoteric knowledge. I’ve read that this is rare but that throughout history this is the way it has always been done.

In most esoteric belief systems it usually takes years of disciplined meditation, study, ritual, or by other means to attain this secret knowledge. For the chosen few, the circumstances are frequently described similarly: a light coming down from the sky, an entity materializes often with a vision or a message.… Read the rest

Sasquatch Screams Recorded in Missouri

What do you all think? What’s making those scream? Is it all a hoax?

via Cryptozoology News:

A researcher believes he has recorded the screams of ‘Sasquatch’ in the southwestern Missouri part of the Ozark mountains.

Randy Savig, a disabled 50-year-old that has been investigating the Bigfoot phenomenon for over three years, says the audio recorder captured the alleged screams at 10.30 p.m. in an area known as Pine Ridge.

“For the most part I do audio work,” he told Cryptozoology News. “This was the first time I have been able to catch this close enough for it to be fairly clear,” he added.

The audio file, which lasts close to three minutes, was reportedly recorded with a parabolic microphone and it represents a series of unidentified howls interrupted by dog barks and a train whistle. As soon as the train sounds subside, the howls resume.

“We were at camp about a mile away,” says Savig.

UFOs and Little Green Men

An interesting little piece of UFO history.

via Phantoms and Monsters:

The following article was published in the Toppenish Review (Toppenish, WA) on Jan. 26, 1977. For the time, the amount of UFO / extraterrestrial information reported in this piece was somewhat remarkable for print or on-air media. Please note that In Search of… was a television series that had started broadcasting April 1977…considered by many to be the pioneer of mysterious phenomena television:

Martha Cantu of Harrah said if her son ever tells her again to “come and look,” she’ll be sure to do it.

Last Wednesday when her agitated nine-year-old son Jose woke his mother up at about 6:30 a.m. asking her to explain the little “man” he saw outside. She discounted his story and settled down to catch up on the sleep she’d lost the night before with a fussy baby.

Ouija Boards Become A Christmas ‘Must Buy’: Church Warns ‘Don’t Let This Darkness Into Your Lives’

via The Inquistr:

It would appear that Ouija boards are fast becoming one of the “coolest” and “must-have” Christmas gifts of 2014, but the church has fiercely criticized the trend calling it “absolutely appalling,” and strongly warned people to “not let this darkness” into their lives.

Google reports that sales of Ouija boards are up to 300 percent, and are flying off the shelves quicker than you can say, “Oh no, it looks like poltergeist activity’.

The reason for the resurgence in sales is a new low-budget horror film called Ouija.

The film, which tells the time-honored story of kids meddling with powers they do not comprehend and then wondering why all of a sudden everything’s gone to hell, was slated by the critics, but cinema-going teens adored it.

Cue the current demand for Ouija boards. Interestingly, toy manufacturer Hasbro, who are one of the companies currently selling Ouija boards to ghost-seeking teens, helped finance the making of Ouija.

Defining the Supernatural

Richard Carrier writes:

There is a trend in science and law to define the word “supernatural” as “the untestable,” which is perhaps understandable for its practicality, but deeply flawed as both philosophy and social policy. Flawed as philosophy, because testability is not even a metaphysical distinction, but an epistemological one, and yet in the real world everyone uses the word “supernatural” to make metaphysical distinctions. And flawed as social policy, because the more that judges and scientists separate themselves from the people with deviant language, the less support they will find from that quarter, and the legal and scientific communities as we know them will crumble if they lose the support of the people. Science and the courts must serve man. And to do that, they must at least try to speak his language. And yet already a rising tide of hostility against both science and the courts is evident.

Alien Abductions: Facts and Origin

via Live Science:

Hundreds of thousands or millions of Americans believe they have been abducted by aliens. In a typical case, an abductee recounts lying in bed one night when an eerie feeling overcomes him, and alien beings appear out of nowhere. The extraterrestrials transport him to a spacecraft and subject him to a battery of physical and psychological tests. After what seems like hours, he is returned to his bedroom unharmed, and finds that the whole ordeal transpired in minutes.

Abductees think their traumatic experiences were real. However, most psychologists think abductions are lucid dreams or hallucinations, triggered by an awareness of other people’s similar experiences. One recent experiment, in which participants trained in lucid dreaming techniques were able to dream up vivid alien encounters, supports this hypothesis. But if each perceived abduction is just the latest in a series of hallucinations, what was it that triggered that first dream or delusion?

Is It Legal To Kill A Ghost?

It’s pretty universally agreed that Ghosts can be quite the inconvenience (All of those Paranormal Activity movies wouldn’t lie to us…)

But since a ghost is apparently the surviving soul of a human, if anyone ever destroyed one, could they then be charged with having committed murder?

This might seem to be an incredibly pedantic question, but a number of real-life court cases have probed the legality of Ghost-a-cide.

[Poll] Favorite Film Genre

826 PARANORMAL (CC by  2.0)

826 PARANORMAL (CC by 2.0)

Happy Halloween, Disnfonauts. I hope you all have a good and safe weekend. We’re starting a new poll today, a little bit different than some of the others–and definitely more mundane. With that being said, it’s something that I’ve been curious about for quite sometime now. I want to know your favorite film genre. Of course there is a lot of overlap, and I tried to stay away from the sub-genres (the list would be giant with them). I’d also like to note the contention around animation: is it really a genre? Or is it a technique that encompasses all genres? Personally, I always hesitate to definitively label it as a genre, but a lot of folks do, so I’m including it here.

The last poll was a simple “yes” or “no” question.

Have you ever had a paranormal experience?

  • Yes (64%, 526 Votes)
  • No (36%, 296 Votes)

Total Voters: 822

Satan’s Hollow – The Portal from Ohio to Hell

This video by a YouTube channel called ‘”Believe’ A Paranormal Experience” follows two young men on a pilgrimage/road-trip across country to visit paranormal places. Their last stop requires venturing into a storm drain known as “Satan’s Hollow” which allegedly hosts/hosted devil worshipers and demonic rituals. The radio device they use to communicate with the netherworld at the end is a nice touch.
